[QUOTE]If you got any good leads elsewhere though, I'll pass them on to him (I love playing art manager).[/QUOTE] I wouldn't say "leads", but I was thinking it wouldn't hurt to expand his horizons and try doing actual comics or manga. If you're not trying to get your own story published [i]and[/i] retain your rights, then it's not nearly as hard to find work. Cross-licensing, adaptations and collaborations are especially popular in the manga industry right now. If you work for one editor and make a good impression, they'll speak to other editors, other publishers and other media companies. Sometimes game companies even approach comic companies looking for artists. Also, sometimes the best way to get published is to get published...if that makes any sense. Maybe even trying something like Zuda(comics.com) might not be a bad idea? [QUOTE]Talent and skill aren't everything. Personality goes a loooooong way. And by personality I mean things like good work ethic, friendliness, responsibility and the ability to take constructive criticism. From what I can gleam from your posts you don't seem to have a problem with any of these things though. [/QUOTE] I really pride myself on my professionalism and work ethic. Even if I'm not the best person for a job, I'm probably the most sincere and hard-working. My problem was that "professionalism" got in the way of making connections. My "good manners" made me seem offish and unconfident. In the entertainment industry, being fun to work with can be an important factor. You can't be afraid to be persistent. Go to Comic Con and show your portfolio to anyone who will look at it. If they don't like you, ask them what you can do. Send the portfolio to any company you might like to work for and some you wouldn't. Who knows when you might find someone who likes your art. This is all really obvious advice, I suppose, but I thought I would give it all the same.
